Textline Question from Kent in Ohio 3/9/16
Lunardi currently has UK as a four seed. The current five-seeds are: Maryland with Diamond Stone, Cal with Ivan Rabb, Iowa State with Georges Niang, and Iowa with Jarrod Uthoff. Which big man would Kentucky like to see the most? Least?
-Kent in Ohio
Shew that’s a hell of a question Kent… But off gut instinct I’m gonna go with Niang as being the big man I would rather Kentucky stay away from this year. He is a big brute, physical, and has good feet and post skills. He’s averaging 19.4 points and 6.2 rebounds a game, shooting 54% from the field, only 38% from three, but he will hit a trey occasionally, shoots 3.9 of them a game. I think our big guys would have trouble slowing him down. Now that doesn’t mean I don’t think we can beat Iowa State, because I do believe we can. But Niang would most likely give the Cats big’s fits.
What’s everyone else’s thoughts on Kent’s question?
